Blockchain Introduces New Security Vulnerabilities

While Blockchain adoption is gaining traction, it remains a very complex and misunderstood technology. Because it is not quite battle-tested, specialized skills are desperately needed to ensure security best practices are implemented.

Our Blockchain CoE is led by one of the industry’s foremost experts in blockchain who has contributed to prominent blockchain security tools and presented on securing smart contracts at Defcon, Trufflecon, New York Blockchain Week, and others. The company has delivered smart contract audits, decentralized application pen testing, code reviews, and training for, DigitalX, Metacash, Black Hat, and others.

Blockchain Smart Contract CTF

This free platform is a Decentralized App containing vulnerable smart contracts with various business use cases ranging from decentralized trust funds and open-source lottery systems to ICOs and automated royalty agreements. Players are challenged to exploit vulnerabilities commonly found in smart contracts to steal fake test net ETH and earn points. Hints are available when creativity is exhausted.
